@Citrus-Fruit, yes I know about the canals in Birmingham. I look forward to having a chance to photograph them one day. But they don't dominate the city in the same way the harbour and port dominates Rotterdam. Canals are like small rivers, and unless it's a completely canal centric city like Venice and to a lesser degree, Amsterdam, they are usually in the background.

Have a look at a group of photos from Rotterdam, Birmingham, Venice and Amsterdam. Most of Rotterdam show the port and harbour somewhere. Most from Venice or Amsterdam show the canals somewhere in a shot. But you really have to look hard to find photos of Birminghams canals.

Just a thought. I love the idea of the canals in Birmingham though, and have to see and enjoy them for myself someday in the future.
